: A/C Problem..intermittent cold

I've got a 2006 Daytona that has started to intermittently blow warmish air, but then come full blast back with cold air. Is something starting to give within the HVAC unit? Anyone experience this.

Also, the unit does NOT blow as cold of an air as say my wife's '04 Jeep Liberty.

Can this be an indication of my R134a leaking or a bad compressor?

It could need freon,the compressor clutch could be slipping or kicking in and out.Best to have some gauges hooked up to check out your pressures.

You say "intermittent"... does the lack of cold air have any correlation to your right foot pressing down on the go pedal?

At full throttle, some of these cars cut power to the A/C compressor.
